went to the Women in Motion orientation tonight. I am so excited about this program.  we start walking Saturday morning on the indoor track At WSU. When I ran track for them in 81-82, it was a wood floor. Now it is a state of the art poly rubber track. It is awesome.  The women are so supportive of each other.  Our intern adviser is  a poll Dancer. No not in some sleazy night club. It has become quite an athletic platform.  There are 70 of us registered this year.

That sounds like fun Wendy, you get to exercise and spend time with others, a win win in my book.

Ok, off to get to Jim's surgery at 9. Two hour drive. Now, he tells me there is a doc, up here, that does this. Wish he had said so sooner.

Frocasting snow starting around early evening (5 p.m.) (how do they know that, you can't give a "time" to weather) and then black ice in the a.m. tomorrow. Just great! Jim has a post op in the morning. At least, it is here. But. we are on a mountain. Could be a hairy trip down. With me driving, we might not MAKE it down. I am the world's worst driver. With no depth perception, I can't tell where the egde is.

been an eventful 45 min around here. Got the kids off to meet the bus. They let the cat in on their way out. Jen felt she needed to give him a bath. She just will NOT let him alone. He tolerates it, but only barely. So the two of them were underfoot - with TC trying to get away from Jen by climbing me, an her trying to get to him, by climbing me. Meanwhile I had a handful of baby and really needed to potty. I finally got the dog put out, put the kid down and escaped. As I was returning to the livingroom, I saw TC stroll over and headbump Sprout (they rub foreheads in greeting) and then all of a sudden he turned into a buzz-saw. All I can think is that maybe Sprout got a handful of fur, altho I  didn't see him even reach out. I got there in a blink, but not before the cat had bit him  on his cheek, just by his ear, and clawed him in the eye. Poor little guy's face is all swollen and he couldn't open his eyes for about 20 min. I grabbed the cat to toss his hairy a$$ out and Jen lunged at the door. Cat nearly took my arm off coming straight up and back in. Thankfully he missed the baby on re-entry.  It's taken me this long to get the little guy cleaned up and  calmed down. He finally dropped off to sleep. The redness and swelling is nearly gone from the bite. Can't tell about the eye yet, but he had it open and I couldn't see any damage, so i think it'll be OK.   ...Mom has plenty of adreniline in her system. Caffiene is not nessacery this morning, Thank you.

Patti, I'm sorry you had such a rough go off it. I hope there are no further complications from the surgery.

Wendy, enjoy having your sewing room back!

Barbara, have a wonderful time with Thea and Kelli. You can color me jealous.

For those of you who asked, yes I am felling better, Thank you. Still a little slow, but greatly improved over the last couple of days.

Jeez, CC! Never a dull moment for you! Just wanted to remind you to keep an eye on Sprout. Cat bites are especially nasty and prone to infection. Don't take any chances!

Poor Sprout and poor mom, what a morning. I'm happy everything has calmed down. I don't want to be an alarmist CC, but I used to work at a Vet clinic and people got bit by dogs and cats all the time, the only ones the vet really worried about were the cat bites. Their claws and mouths are germ factories. You may want to at least call your DR just to be on the safe side. Sending (((HUGS))) (((HUGS))) (((HUGS))) to you both!!!!

The site often has hiccups I think.

With my baby quilt I might do straight line quilting and leave fmq practise for one solid color quilt.

Wow you have definitely had a morning.  I am afraid that would have been a dead cat.  Hope Sprout does ok and the scratches/bites don't get infected.   Cat bites can be really nasty.
